Right now in my first year of college so far i've seen a lot more political messages and influences than I ever saw in k-12, not from the professors though but from fellow students.
    Just remember those student's opinions were formed somewhere by someone. Their belief system is not coincidental.

    Have you studied any theology in your various schooling?

    Most likely, at least in my opinion, those opinions came from friends, family, pop culture, and things like that and less so much their english class or history class or science class. To answer your follow up question I attended a school from kindergarten till the 5th grade which was an anglican private school but I was not necessarily raised with religion and after moving to the US and attending school here it's been absent. As for the schools here that I have attended no I have not studied theology at any of them. I took a humanities course in high school which talked about some of the world religions and such but I would say that that is the extent of my knowledge to be honest.

    No thanks. I'm not scared of the real world as you seem to be, and I don't celebrate ignorance and fear as you do.

    Anti-intellectualism like yours is the reason America is lagging miles behind most of the rest of the developed world by practically every metric that has anything to do with quality of life, from health to violence to education.

    I encourage you to study religion and practice one if you choose. The lessons and guidance will definitely enhance your life and help you through it's little [and big] bumps and give you a greater understanding of the world around you.

    So you consider my faith as backwards, anti-intellectualism? That's the sort of attitude we're discussing here and why Liberalism has failed every where it's been tried. [including our education system]

    You can keep your intellectualism or whatever. Hope it serves you well.

    I appreciate that and I have no ill will towards religion and the various faiths but I also have no draw towards it or them. I am highly spiritual though and have my own personal beliefs that stem from the natural world.

    I consider your insistence on forcing it onto children despite its direct contradiction to known reality to be backwards. It has nothing to do with the religion itself. I feel the same way about your promotion of homeopathy, which has nothing to do with religion, but which kills people every year, many of them children.

    First of all, I am not a liberal. Second of all, progressive thought of one kind or another (both liberal and not) is the only reason you're still alive despite yourself. It is progressive thought that implemented the infrastructure you're using to access the internet, the access to schooling that guaranteed you'd learn to read, and the human habitation standards that render your environment so clean that you can afford to claim your lack of infection comes from woo, rather than decades of progressive fighting for human health and environmental protection.

    People who think like you might have continued to blame infection on bad humor and let people die in droves, rather than ever bothering to investigate and discover germs. Superstitious nonsense makes the ignorant feel superior while they let people fight and die unnecessarily, and yes, I oppose it with a special vociferousness especially in schools.

    Too intellectual to believe in a creator, I see. Sometime in your life when you're looking for something to draw strength from, just think real hard.

    Best of luck with that.
